CHRISTMAS EVE DONATIONS The National Association of Congregational Christian Churches Ministerial Assistance And Enrichment Fund will be the recipient of a portion of the Christmas Eve donations.
LESSONS AND CAROLS On December 22rd, our church will be celebrating the Christmas season with a service of Lessons and Carols. Our membership looks forward to this joyous Sunday every year. Because the music and readings on this day make the holidays extra special, we would like to share it with others. We are asking members to invite someone you haven’t seen in church lately or another friend to church on December 22nd to share in celebration.
COOKIES FOR CHRISTMAS EVE – COFFEE HOUR As you are doing your holiday baking, please set aside some cookies for the Christmas Eve fellowship hour following the service. Please bring your baked goods to the church kitchen the Sunday before Christmas Eve or on Christmas Eve, or make arrangements with a member of council. Thank You
SHARE-THE-WARMTH This Christmas season share the warmth by donating hats, gloves, coats, scarves or other warm clothing to decorate our Share the Warmth Tree. The tree will be in the narthex throughout the month of December.
In case you haven’t seen it ... Friendship Manor and First Congregational Church are mentioned in the 3rd paragraph of a Salt Lake Tribune news article: http://www.sltrib.com/news/2017/11/15/50-years-later-friendship-manor-remains-a-monument-to-how-faith-groups-can-work-together-to-serve-utahs-elderly/ (or click on the button below) 50 years later, Friendship Manor remains a monument to how faith groups can work together to serve Utah’s elderly. It was a 1961 chat between a Unitarian minister and a Westminster College professor that proved the genesis for Salt Lake City’s Friendship Manor retirement community.
